"A quiet, slow drama where nothing much ever really happens. The setup was good, the ending left me wanting. Very little magic beyond the first act, but it was ok."
|53 60%||Quantum of Solace (2008) - Jul 02, 2020
"Played out like a straight ahead action movie, but it is truly great action. It lacks narrative spark however. Not on the same level as Casino Royale, but certainly enjoyable."
|52 57%||Lethal Weapon (1987) - Jul 01, 2020
"A definite product of the 80s, completely illogical, with suspect tone management. But damn, it has fun though. I can overlook some of the problems. "
|39 23%||J. Edgar (2011) - Jul 01, 2020
"Lacks any type of magic, is too formal, and DiCaprio comes off as trying too hard here. From the awful lighting, to the lifeless cinematography, to the puzzling makeup, it appears that this was made on a shoestring budget. Eastwood has a reputation for getting movies made on time and below budget, and that is detrimental to this production. There must be a better way to make a biopic about J. Edgar Hoover. Far from awful, but decidedly below average and a missed opportunity for sure."

"A sad, slow little tale that cuts to the heart of the American dream. But it lacks spark."
|62 74%||Away We Go (2009) - Jul 01, 2020
"A small, human, and funny movie. The tone is a little bit out of sorts sometimes, and it can be too cute, but the leads do a great job grounding the whole thing, bringing out their vulnerabilities at all the right times. This one flew under the radar and deserves to be seen."
|52 57%||The Breadwinner (2017) - Jun 30, 2020
"Fascinating look at a different culture, unique animation. Not engaging enough, but I liked it. A tough watch that I may never revisit."
|40 25%||Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) - Jun 29, 2020
"For a 50s B-movie, the cinematography and lighting are remarkable. The editing choices, acting, and dialogue are rough around the edges, and no sense of humor to speak of in a movie that badly needs it. Not enough earned suspense or scares for this to make an impact on me. Bad ending."
|63 76%||I'll See You in My Dreams (2015) - Jun 29, 2020
"At times brisk and whimsical, other times heavy and quiet, and the tones are managed extremely well. Good performances across the board, smart, and heartfelt."
|53 60%||Go (1999) - Jun 29, 2020
"A maturely immature movie. Funny and dark, strikes a solid tone throughout. A couple of the performances gave me a couple of cringes, but I liked it."
